(My sister used to work at a party rental supply place, and took calls at the front desk. Every day when she came home she would tell us about the ridiculous calls she would get, and one day came home with this gem:)

Sister: [Party rental supply], this is [her name].

Caller: What’s the cheapest thing y’all’s got?

Sister: Well, what sort of item are you looking to rent? We have a wide variety of-

Caller: Just the cheapest thing- what’s the cheapest thing y’all’s got?

Sister: Sir, I would need to know what you’re interested in; we have tents, tables, chairs, linens, bounce houses, utensils…

Caller: What’s the cheapest thing y’all’s got?

Sister: *sigh* Um, maybe a fork..? or a table skirt clip..?

I work at a party store and we sell tons of Halloween product, including bags of spiderwebs, you know, like the kind you can’t go anywhere without seeing in the month of October. The following interaction is about a small bag of spiderwebs.

Customer: “Excuse me, but how big does this stretch?”

Me: “It’s not really a measurable thing because it depends how you use it”

Customer: “How many feet”

Me: “It depends on what you are doing with it, it will cover a surprising amount tho”

Customer: “How many feet”

Me: “I wouldn’t be able to say”

Customer: “How many feet”

Me: “5.”

Me: “Oh thanks”

….. Walks away then comes back

Customer “Are you sure it’s 5 feet”

Me: “Sure”

Customer: “Why is this bag more expensive than this one?”

Me: “Because the smaller one is 1 oz and the larger one is 4.01 oz”

Customer: “So they are the Same price”

Me: “No, one has more in it”

Customer: “But they are the same product?”

Me: “Yes, just one has more”

Customer: “How many feet is it”

(A customer and her boyfriend have gone back and forth in the store, laughing and joking. Suddenly, they both come up to the counter to my manager.)

Customer: “Excuse me. Have I been here before?”

Manager: “No, not that I know of.”

Customer: “Have you and I ever met?”

Manager: “No.”

Customer: *to my coworker and me* “What about you two?”

Us: “No.”

Customer: “Right. Now, tell me that a camo-themed birthday wouldn’t be cute for a girl. She could be a majorette.”

Boyfriend: “We ain’t having no majorette party.”

Customer: “If you can spell ‘majorette,’ then we won’t do it. Can you spell majorette?”

Boyfriend: *suddenly angry* “I can spell ‘kiss my a**’!” *storms out to be followed by his laughing girlfriend*

Manager: “Did that really just happen?”

The Kind Of Man That Puts Monetary Value On Women

, , , | Right | May 8, 2019

(I work at a store that mostly sells pranks and novelty items, and the staff often jokes around with customers. An older man has come in and I am quickly able to help him find the item that he is looking for. We have two counters in our store — one up front and one in the back — but our only register is at the front counter. We are located at the back counter, and the man has remained quiet the whole time, and before I can direct him up front, he silently shoves a hundred dollar bill in my face.)

Me: “Actually, sir, we’ll need to check out up front, but I’ll be happy to take that bill off your hands!” *laughs*

Customer: *completely somber, putting the bill back into his wallet* “It’s just like a woman to ask for money and take it.”

Me: “Um… Let’s go get you checked out.”

(At a party-themed store for Halloween, my husband and I are trying on outfits. I go into a changing room and spot a family right as I’m closing the curtain; mother, father, teenage daughter. Then I overhear this…)

Girl: Oh, my god! Dad! Those boots! You have to get them for me, I’ll have an orgasm!
Father: [Girl’s name]!!
Me: (thinking) Did that really just happen?
